Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Explore New Orleans' surroundings by going to Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow) and Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site). There's lots more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Jackson Square, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, observe the fascinating underwater world at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, and see the interesting displays at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium.
